The conference includes, among its active participants, the originators of UML and other key individuals involved in the definition and evolution of the standard. <<UML>>2000 takes place just as work on the next version of UML (2.0) begins and will have a strong bearing on the standard. Highlights of the programme include: - Invited talks from Steve Cook, Ivar Jacobsen and Cris Kobryn - A quality technical programme of tutorials, workshops, papers and panels, covering the development and application of UML and its possible supercedants. Topics include: - design of concurrent, distributed and real-time applications - modeling web applications; modeling human-computer interaction - executable UML; modeling vs. extreme programming; advanced tools - component-based and product line engineering - rearchitecting and improving UML; formal semantics; UML 2.0 Venue: The City of York is world famous for its historic buildings and tourist attractions.
